IE4SOC (Industrial Experiences for Service Oriented Computing) Workshop

ICSOC-ServiceWave 2009 - Industrial Application Workshop

Service-oriented applications are being developed in a variety of application domains. While research focuses on theoretical aspects in themes such as Service Engineering, Service Compositions, Service Management, SOA at runtime, Quality of Service, and Grid Services, solid experiences about the utility of the proposed approaches in industry are still missing. The aim of this workshop is, therefore, to identify the most promising research directions that can have an impact on the service industry for the purpose of aligning academic and industrial research agendas. The evaluation of different proposed approaches and benchmarks and complete case studies is needed to be able to assess which are the most promising research directions that can have an impact on the industrial development of this field.



Proceedings of the workshop are now on-line IE4SOC Proceedings




Workshop Agenda (Nov, 23rd, 2009)


10.00 – 10.10 Welcome by Workshop organizers (B. Pernici, Politecnico di Milano)

10.10 – 10.30 The S-Cube approach to the modeling of industrial case studies (P. Plebani, Politecnico di Milano)

10.30 – 11.00 Research Challenges for Seamless Service Integration in Extensible Enterprise Systems (Matthias Allgaier, Markus Heller, SAP Research)

11.30 – 12.00 Implementing an SOA for a primary telecommunication operator (Giovanni Laudicina, Ferdinando Campanile, Salvatore Giordano, Sync Lab srl)

12.00 – 12.30 Improving e-service acceptance by involving researchers, providers and users - The efforts of our research institution in the field of e-service acceptance (Gregor Polančič, Boštjan Šumak, Marjan Heričko, University of Maribor)

12.30 – 13.00 On Exploiting Research Solutions to Build Internet of Services at the City Level (Marco Pistore, SayService)

13.00 – 13.30 Panel discussion with presenters and all participants to analyze industry-research cooperation towards the development of industrial case studies



Starting from the research work of the EU Network of Excellence S-Cube on analyzing case studies and the gaps in current solutions of current research towards the establishment of adaptive and flexible service-based applications, and with the goal of involving industries in the discussion of experiences in using services in real cases, the workshop has the aim of collecting case studies and perceived gaps in current platforms from industries and from currently running industrial and research projects. The aim of this workshop is to broaden the scope of this gap analysis by collecting industrial scenarios and case studies and by analysing the industrial needs for research in the next 5-10 years. A systematic basis for analyzing the available material can be set and a contribution can be made towards establishing benchmarks for assessing technologies and new research approaches

The industries will be involved with the presentation of their experiences and of their gap analysis with respect to platforms and solutions being adopted and developed.

The goal of the workshop is to establish a discussion forum to analyze and compare the characteristics of presented case studies and solutions.


Big industrial players and SMEs are encouraged to submit a 1000-word position paper of your work to by November 5 2009  describing relevant case studies and scenarios in the following open list of application domains:

  • pervasive systems
  • automotive systems
  • product design and distribution
  • e-health
  • e-government
  • telecommunication
  • ... other related application domains


We anticipate that submitters will be given about 15-20 minutes to present their work to the assembled group, followed by 5-10 minutes for questions from the audience. The exact timing and review process will depend on the number of abstracts received. 

All the position papers will be published in the workshop proceedings that will be made available during the event.
